Inverted Streets: Alice Betts & Juliana Capes

Type: Exhibition

Pavement Rainbow, Screenshot, Juliana Capes, 2021

Inverted Streets by Alice Betts and Juliana Capes is an installation that stems from the artists’ shared interest in the urban environment and how beauty, work, weather, poetics, and disruption figure within our lives. Motivated by their everyday experiences of pavement rainbows on rain slicked roads or the excavations that fracture them, the artists reflect the street into the gallery to explore the tensions between the interior and exterior and the push-pull of repulsion and attraction, anxiety and wonder. Layered projected moving image, description and sculpture make visible the overlooked and transform the everyday and the abject into the beautiful and meaningful.

Juliana Capes is a multi-disciplinary visual artist. Her current artwork is influenced by her experiences of working as a visual describer in Scottish galleries and museums, the unrelenting beauty of the world and by the processes of feeling, seeing and believing.

Alice Betts is a socially engaged artist whose diverse practice explores peoples’ use of public space. She experiments with the kinaesthetic possibilities of video and creative projection, to impact the viewer with a poetic layering and sequencing of ideas and sensations.
